<para>The license is the standard Microsoft Shared Source license. We may be
able to relax certain aspects of this license in future releases
(please contact us if this license is unsuitable for you). The
license is as follows:</para>
<blockquote>
<para>This Microsoft Research Shared Source license agreement ("MSR-SSLA")
is a legal agreement between you and Microsoft Corporation
("Microsoft" or "we") for the software or data identified above, which
may include source code, and any associated materials, text or speech
files, associated media and "online" or electronic documentation and
any updates we provide in our discretion (together, the "Software").</para>
<para>By installing, copying, or otherwise using this Software, found at
http://research.microsoft.com/downloads, you agree to be bound by the
terms of this MSR-SSLA. If you do not agree, do not install copy or
use the Software. The Software is protected by copyright and other
intellectual property laws and is licensed, not sold.
</para>

</para>
<para>You may not use or distribute this Software or any derivative works in
any form for commercial purposes. Examples of commercial purposes
would be running business operations, licensing, leasing, or selling
the Software, distributing the Software for use with commercial
products, using the Software in the creation or use of commercial

commercial gain to you or others.
</para>
<para>If the Software includes source code or data, you may create
derivative works of such portions of the Software and distribute the
modified Software for non-commercial purposes, as provided herein.
</para>
<para>In return, we simply require that you agree:
</para>
<para>1. That you will not remove any copyright or other notices from the Software.
</para>
<para>2. That if any of the Software is in binary format, you will not
attempt to modify such portions of the Software, or to reverse
engineer or decompile them, except and only to the extent authorized
by applicable law.
</para>
<para>3. That if you distribute the Software or any derivative works of the
Software, you will distribute them under the same terms and conditions
as in this license, and you will not grant other rights to the
Software or derivative works that are different from those provided by
this MSR-SSLA.
</para>
<para>4. That if you have created derivative works of the Software, and
distribute such derivative works, you will cause the modified files to
carry prominent notices so that recipients know that they are not
receiving the original Software. Such notices must state: (i) that you
have changed the Software; and (ii) the date of any changes.
</para>
<para>5. That Microsoft is granted back, without any restrictions or
limitations, a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free,
assignable and sub-licensable license, to reproduce, publicly perform
or display, install, use, modify, distribute, make and have made, sell
and transfer your modifications to and/or derivative works of the
Software source code or data, for any purpose.
</para>
<para>6. That any feedback about the Software provided by you to us is
voluntarily given, and Microsoft shall be free to use the feedback as
it sees fit without obligation or restriction of any kind, even if the
feedback is designated by you as confidential.
</para>
<para>7. THAT THE SOFTWARE COMES "AS IS", WITH NO WARRANTIES. THIS MEANS NO
EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION,
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ANY
WARRANTY AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THE SOFTWARE OR
ANY WARRANTY OF TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT
THIS SOFTWARE WILL FULFILL ANY OF YOUR PARTICULAR PURPOSES OR
NEEDS. ALSO, YOU MUST PASS THIS DISCLAIMER ON WHENEVER YOU DISTRIBUTE
THE SOFTWARE OR DERIVATIVE WORKS.
</para>
<para>8. THAT NEITHER MICROSOFT NOR ANY CONTRIBUTOR TO THE SOFTWARE WILL BE
LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RELATED TO THE SOFTWARE OR THIS MSR-SSLA,
INCLUDING DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL
DAMAGES, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT THE LAW PERMITS, NO MATTER WHAT LEGAL
THEORY IT IS BASED ON. ALSO, YOU MUST PASS THIS LIMITATION OF
LIABILITY ON WHENEVER YOU DISTRIBUTE THE SOFTWARE OR DERIVATIVE WORKS.
</para>
<para>9. That we have no duty of reasonable care or lack of negligence, and
we are not obligated to (and will not) provide technical support for
the Software.
</para>
<para>10. That if you breach this MSR-SSLA or if you sue anyone over patents
that you think may apply to or read on the Software or anyone's use of
the Software, this MSR-SSLA (and your license and rights obtained
herein) terminate automatically. Upon any such termination, you shall
destroy all of your copies of the Software immediately. Sections 5,
6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13 and 14 of this MSR-SSLA shall survive any
termination of this MSR-SSLA.
</para>
<para>11. That the patent rights, if any, granted to you in this MSR-SSLA
only apply to the Software, not to any derivative works you make.
</para>
<para>12. That the Software may be subject to U.S. export jurisdiction at
the time it is licensed to you, and it may be subject to additional
export or import laws in other places. You agree to comply with all
such laws and regulations that may apply to the Software after
delivery of the software to you.
</para>
<para>13. That all rights not expressly granted to you in this MSR-SSLA are
reserved.
</para>
<para>14. That this MSR-SSLA shall be construed and controlled by the laws
of the State of Washington, USA, without regard to conflicts of law.
If any provision of this MSR-SSLA shall be deemed unenforceable or
contrary to law, the rest of this MSR-SSLA shall remain in full effect
and interpreted in an enforceable manner that most nearly captures the
intent of the original language.
